Bold And Full: Madame Curie

Today our Bold and Full spotlight is shining brightly on Madame Curie (7 November 1867 – 4 July 1934), a chemist and physicist.

Madame Marie Curie was a HUSTLER her entire life. Marie was curious taking after her parents who were both teachers. She had a passion for Math and Physics and knew she could make a difference. Women weren’t allowed to attend the “men only” University in Warsaw, so Marie PERSEVERED her way through some “underground” classes. She dreamed of learning at a real University and never gave up. After 5 years Marie ACHIEVED her goal to attend the Sorebonne University in Paris.

Marie Curie’s determination paid off. Just listen to her list of accomplishments: Marie Curie was the first woman to win a Nobel Price, and only woman to win twice, as well as only person to win in two different sciences. She was also the first woman to become a professor at the University of Paris, and in 1995 became the first woman to be entombed on her own merits in the Panthéon in Paris. She never gave up, even after failures. She OWNED those failures and just kept up the HUSTLE.
